A way of life in Lampang
Die Welt, a German Newspaper, reports a way of life in Lampang, a small city in Thailand. Stunning teak architecture and products at Tama-O is one of the top attractions in Lampang. The culture of Myanmar has been found in the city’s history which can be seen in the architecture of the temple with beautiful antiques that are similar to what are in an Indian temple. These reflect the cultural exchanges in Lampang. The way of life in Lampang is simple and peaceful; people there still use horse-drawn carriages as means of transport.
The Thai Elephant Conservation Center in Lampang is founded in 1993 under Her Royal Highness Princess Galyani Vadhana’s Patronage. Ithouses six of HM King Bhumibol's elephants. HRH has a special interest in the Hospital Work and supported the center to provide a medical treatment for elephants.

Sufficiency Economy Principles in German

Modern Thailand is building a democracy that is based on good governance, the rule of law, human rights, transparency, and accountability, and one that would lead to sustainable development.
Thailand has a dynamic economy – one that is open, market-based, private-sector led and integrated into the global economy. More than just a top tourist destination, Thailand’s strategic location, literally on the crossroads between South and East Asia, is a gateway to a growing market of nearly 600 million people. Combined with its solid infrastructure, global connectivity, world-class transport, quality human resources, and business-friendly environment, Thailand is attracting an increasing number of investors. While Thailand has embraced modernization and industrialization as it now moves on the path of creative economy, agriculture remains an important sector in the Kingdom’s economy...
